inner thoughts, outer reflections

“Inner Thoughts, Outer Reflections” is my graduate collection. Based on my compulsive practice of keeping a visual diary, I explored my mental process through print and stitch. Each of the dresses has a different mind-map, the “Before I Die”, “What I Miss about Home”, and “What I’m Feeling” dresses all explore my feelings through humorous illustrations and thought bubbles. The collection aims to portray emotion through clothing by combining the mind maps with unique silhouette shapes created by embroidery hoop structures.
